Large portions of noodle soup with cabbage, koombacha and various veggies. Make sure to bring yen as it is cash only.

Hearty bowl of hand-cut noodles (most similar to udon), with a delicious miso/vegetable broth.

Noodle comes with lots of veggie and nice broth. It is served in a big hot bowl. Very warm and comforting. It is simple and can be done at home, miso, noodle and veggie.

My Japanese friends took me to Hoto Fudo (the one that looks like an igloo). The hoto was so very good and I just wished my stomach was bigger so I could have finished the whole bowl! While each restaurant has the same tasty offerings,...More

Yes I think Hotel Regina is along that same strip with lots of hotels, in which case it's close to the restaurant - within easy walking distance.

Hi KerieMeg, I have not personally been to the United States so I'm not certain where you can purchase houtou noodles. Best bet - head to Japan :)
